Group Interview: Seemed to be the normal NASA exercise reported at other interviews. All candidates had a piece of paper with instructions and first 5 mins was taken up by reading your individual instructions. Total 30 mins for the exercise you had to come up with an ideal candidate (There were 8 to choose from). All candidates had differing instructions but not contradictory. There is no right answer but will ask how you came to that conclusion. Simulator Breifing & Assessment: We were briefed by a couple of simulator instructors through the profile in more detail. (Same one sent when interview date was confirmed). This was very helpful, they said the expect you to know it but it wasn't an assessment as such. They wanted to see general raw instrument flying scan and if you were reachable. Did the first ILS, go around and the instructor took control at the level off and gave some pointers then I did one more ILS and landed. Overall great experience. I did not do real sim practice prior just a PC practice which helped alot. Tech Quiz: Overall nothing unexpected here. Typically range of questions, some PPL...

  2. Dec 03, 2019 1. Group discussion About picking up someone to send to airspace. Nothing to hard, just do it as a team. Don’t talk too much. Better to show them you are listening to others. 2. Sim assessment Be prepared to deal with adjusting speed, altitude and heading. If you can practice on any real sim, even it costs, it would be worth. all necessary infos will be informed during briefing. 3. Tech quiz So easy. Level of ppl. No need to worry at all. If you already have some banks, just... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Nov 25, 2019 Day 1. Met all applicants at the first floor of company office. We received the visitor permit and went up to waiting area at the second floor of building. A woman went over the all documents for each applicant and we went to a briefing room to get started group discussion. Mostly, discussion was straight forward, NASA project. Nothing special, just remember that do not talk too much and do not act like you are a leader. Next step was different up to every applicant by their schedule...

  4. Nov 18, 2019 Similar experience to others that have came before. Two day interview. First day consisted of group exercise, sim, and tech quiz. The group exercise seems to be the same NASA exercise Cathay have been running for years. My advice, don’t talk too much, but talk enough. The sim is straightforward, and all they are looking for is improvement. They do not tell you if you passed or not, but we can all tell if we’re in tolerance or not. The sim was an A330 sim. There were no... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Nov 01, 2019 Attended assessment November 2019. As most feedback suggests and as it’s outlined in the email package sent to you, first day is group exercise, sim, technical quiz and personality quiz. If you are invited to second day it is HR/ technical interview, icao English test ($$$), HK class 1 medical. Notes: It should go without saying, but make sure you wear a suit and have a decent bag that can store the documents you have to bring in. Make sure to READ and follow the checklist carefully...

  6. Sep 25, 2019 Hello everybody. I hope this feedback helps you in your preparation for the Cathay interview. My interview took place on the 25-26 September. Day 1: We were a total of 5 people. Very diverse group of people. The day started off with a briefing about Cathay and Hong Kong in general. Then we went straight into the group exercise. It was the standard space mission as explained before in countless other feedback reports. Spend the first 5 minutes just reading through your requirements. There...

  7. Sep 24, 2019 Cathay Day 1 starts with paperwork. As they state to wait in the second floor of North tower, make sure you're on the 2nd floor not on the first. The recruitment Centre is in 1st floor, but you should walk down the hallway then up the stairs to get where you're needed. After the paperwork is all sorted they call you all in to do a group assessment. This was about finding a candidate for space commander, with two HR personal observing. Then it's time for the Sim briefing. Make sure you... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Day 1 - Group Exercise with the rest of the candidates to solve a task. Observed by 3 of Cathay's recruitment team. Advice is to be normal and communicate openly and with respect to show teamwork capability. No need for a gung-ho approach. - Technical Quiz which comprises about 50 questions. Do brush up alot on aerodynamics and principles of flight, vortex generators, high speed flight, turbofan engines, piston engines, aircraft performance, meteorology (what kind of weather to expect in...

  9. Day 1; consisted of group exercise, sim assessment, technical quiz. Just keep participating group discussion and sharing ideas and you will be fine. For sim interview, know the profile and takeoff and landing procedures by heart and recommend practicing b777 simulator at least once before your interview (quite different from propeller aircraft' control. Technical quiz was about aircraft performance, weather, navigation and a little bit of information related with Hong Kong such as Hong Kong... Continue reading this interview experience
